I have recently changed the os of my windows XP to ubuntu. i have heard a lot of great things about it, and frankly was tired of windows. after installing it, it was at first confused on how to use the terminal, but now have figuered it out (mostly) but seem to have a problem with my graphics. on windows XP i was able to run wow amazingly well, and watch videos on youtube without having to wait for it to buffer. but now it seems to take forever to wait for a movie on youtube to load fully, so i was thinking it may have to do with my video card. a lot of talk i have heard has something to do with having the defualt intel drivers. so i was wondering how to get the drivers for an Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 card, and make them the default drivers. i downloaded one from the intel site, and ran it through wine, and it gives me an error message saying that the driver package is not built for this OS. so i was looking for some help.
